I think eggs contain around 9g of fat per one. I don't eat eggs personally but im sure i have seen that around the forums before. Goodluck with your journey :p
Cheers guys i think ill stay clear of eggs then lol is it all fat that i have to make sure i eat less than 5g or just saturated fat im confused the doctor hasnt really given me any advice it was just like heres the perscription and go on their website but thats no use either i thought it would give a list of things that you might normally not be aware of being high in fat such as prawns i never knew that they were high in fat till my doctor told me !!
Prawns are not high in fat ! Tell your Dr he is not a nutritionalist lol Prawns have approx 1.7g fat per 100g hun.
On Xenical, the recommended guidelines are food should be no more than 5% fat ( that is 5g of TOTAL FAT CONTENT per 100g food product) and that your meals should contain no more than 15g of fat.
The best thing to do is get used to reading labels, yep makes shopping a long longer and time consuming, but its also a real eye opener in to what we put into our shopping baskets and ultimately into our mouths.
i take both into consideration such as :
Fat 1.2
Saturated 0.8

to me i'd include them both
:) .. yeah doctors aren't that good with the information!

Good tip for meals on the night.. WW Meals!

After a few weeks you will get that use to reading the packets it will become natural :)

Same here !

I also started xenical on wednesday,:rolleyes:
My doctor told me to start with one a day for two days then move onto two for two days then three ! So far I have had no side effects so i must be doing well ! (apart from wind which i had anyway)
Tonight however its going to be difficult, because we always have a kebab with chips every friday night along with some booze. For me it kind of confirms the end of the week,to seperate it. I cant stop thinking about it and have just had a fat free yoghurt which has done no good my thoughts of chips are winning.Maybe I should just go for it tonight and start again tommorow?:confused:

Hiya - I'm pretty new to this too I started on Monday, so am just figuring it out like you! I think your food looks OK but I'm sure someone who knows more will be along before too long to let you know.

To get a goal ticker - I got mine from www.tickerfactory.com or you can just click on someones and it takes you to the website they've got it from.

Glad you're doing well - I've had a little bit of side effects this morning but completely my own fault as I ate a Kitkat chunky!

Good luck for your first official weigh in, mine is MOnday too so I'll be comparing with you :) xx
i posted the calorie counter link on reply to my thread for you! i think u prob could need to eat a wee bit more than u,ve had!
you will find out how replys to ur thread and other one u have commented by checking ur email! minz is always flashing up to say someone has commented as this is as active as facebook at times i,ve found.lol ur doc,s wife probably does all his cooking for him..heehee
Your Doc was on about prawns containing high amounts of cholesterol - the little b*gg**s!!!
Doesnt do much to change our cholesterol levels though........Saturated fat is the culprit.
See the British heart foundation website.
hiya guys i thanks everyone for u advice kirsty im sure a kit kat chunky will be fine for a treat we will have to compare notes and our 1st weeks weight loss
have u been weeing a lot i constantly need to wee lol
i had a few fruit gums last night as i noticed that they have near enough no fat in them so if i feel like something sweet im gonna suck on a few of them ! can anyone tell me of this is ok please i really wanna do this thing properly
im dreading tomorrow we r going to my mums for sunday dinner and she does the nicest roast potatoes and potatoes dauhinouse :( ill have to have boiled ones or mash i WONT give in to the tempting ones ha ha wish me luck lol


Go on smile! =)
I have a full roast every sunday. No problems :) Sweets tend to be low in fat but very high in sugar. A very nice treat i sometimes have is sugar free sweets from morrisons like strawberry and cream things. :) Great for sucking on and there is nothing in them
